iBeacon Technology - Part 3

Date: 27th February 2015

Duration: 18:30

Show ref: SCOI0206

In this third and final part, I explore further iBeacon technology and Estimote Beacons.

This time, I demonstrate just how easy it is to generate text, images, audio, video, etc, and have that content pushed to an iPhone or iPad when in proximity to an Estimote Beacon. All without a line of code and for free!

iBeacon Technology - Part 2

Date: 20th February 2015

Duration: 12:48

Show ref: SCOI0205

Following on from last week, I explore further iBeacon technology and Estimote Beacons.

Estimote Beacons are delivered fully configured and working straight out of the box. However, once you've signed up for an Estimote Cloud account, you can use the Estimote iOS App (or their website) to tweak the settings on each Beacon. In the first part of the show I show you what is configurable and how to do it.

In the second part of the show, I demonstrate a typical use for iBeacon technology using a 3rd party app called "Launch Here" - an app launcher that you can configure to launch specific applications when you approach a designated Beacon.

iBeacon and Beacons - We've all heard about this new technology brought in with iOS7, but what's it all about?

iBeacon is a technology built on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and allows your iPhone or iPad to connect seamlessly (and with zero configuration) to small, low powered Beacons when you approach them. This has huge potential for Retail, Education, Businesses and even around the home.

In this week's show I try to set out to de-mystify what iBeacon is and start to explore some of its potential.
